Default Unique Tippin Dreadnought SOLD

SOLD.

Reluctantly selling my outstanding Tippin Dreadnought constructed around 2000.


Back and sides: Gorgeous Kahya mahogany. Its appearance changes depending on the viewing angle – from some light one can see the latticed grain and deep striping from others.




Top: Adirondack spruce with wonderful character.


Neck: Glossy smooth full V with a hand-applied stain finishing in a dart at the headstock.

Fretboard: Rich black ebony that seamlessly blends into the neck. Pearl and abalone arrow markers.


Bridge and pins: Ebony

Nut and saddle: Bone

Purfling, soundhole ring headstock veneer: Ivaroid and rosewood


Case: Six latch deluxe TKL

Measurements: 1 ¾” nut, 2 5/16” spring spacing E to E at the saddle.

The sound is extremely clear, with more depth and volume than is usually associated with mahogany-backed guitars. I am the original owner of the guitar, and live near Bill’s shop. In January of 2014, Bill executed the following improvement on this guitar:
- Refret
- Shim nut
- Re-rout saddle
- New saddle
- Re-voice braces
- Install strap button
- Pencil sign label
- Polish

The guitar looks practically new. I’m selling to raise funds, end of story – no trade offers, please. Aggressively priced at $4,250, including Paypal fees and ground shipping in the CONUS.

Are your dates right? You are saying all the work was done almost the same time it was built

Default You Said You Are the Original Owner? I Don't Think So....

You say in your post on 10-14-14 at 8:31am that you are the original owner of this guitar. "I am the original owner of the guitar, and live near Bill’s shop."

Thank you for your explanation of your buying it, selling it and then repurchasing it. Probably good to include that with the original post. Thanks and again, apologies.

1) I purchased the guitar from Spruce Tree Music.

2) I sold the guitar.

3) I re-purchased the guitar.

Robby, I can do without your aspersions.

I keep coming back to this one, and I'm kept from doing something rash only because I can't play a V-shape neck profile.

Best of luck with your sale!
